Understand Mechanics from scratch: the one statics course you need to get started with engineering statics and mechanics
Engineering mechanics, especially statics is the backbone of all mechanical engineering disciplines. being comfortable with the concepts of statics is an essential component in your toolbox on your path to be a successful engineer.
In this course we will go from understanding very basic concepts of physics like time, length and mass step by step through studying motion and working with forces and force components into understanding equilibrium of particles and bodies
After finishing the course you will be able to isolate mechanical subsystems and represent them with their free body diagram including the external forces acting on it and the reactions of the supports.
the following concepts will be discussed in the course
Section one: The fundamentals
What is mechanics
The building blocks of mechanics: Time, length and mass
Motion: Position, velocity and acceleration
Section two: Newton Laws
Newtons first law: What is there is no force?
Newton's second law: What if there is a force?
Newton's third law: What happens to objects that apply force?
Equilibrium and working with forces
Equilibrium of a particle
Breaking forces into their components, working with a force as a vector
The Moment of a force
Equilibrium of a body
Reactions and FBD
Reaction of smooth and rough surfaces
Reactions of supports
Smooth and rough surfaces
Free body diagram FBD
the course will be followed by three other courses as a part of a complete engineering mechanics module
we are looking forward to have you in this engaging and rewarding course!
